A&T STUDENT FEATURED IN NATIONAL PHI KAPPA PHI SCHOLARSHIP AD CAMPAIGN

Jessica Dara Webb, a junior chemistry major at North Carolina A&T State University from Hollister, N.C., is being featured in a national advertising campaign by the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi to promote their study abroad scholarships.  A picture of a broadly-smiling Webb appears prominently on a poster now being sent to colleges and universities throughout the country.   In the spring of 2011, Webb applied for and won one of only 50 $1,000 grants provided by the group to help students afford the expense of studying abroad.  During the summer of 2011, Webb used her Phi Kappa Phi grant to help fund her study abroad experience at a university in Denmark.   
    
Webb also received one of the highest scores for her poster presentation in the area of physiology at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) meeting held in St. Louis Mo.  She was recognized at the closing banquet of the conference.  Jessica’s prize was sponsored by the American Physiological Society.
